Iftikhar Ahmad is Dayton Airport's Director of Aviation and probably the region's biggest booster. He explains how the Dayton Airport - once a hub for Piedmont - is clawing its way back. It once handled over 6 million passengers per year and after losing its hub status lost much of its traffic.
The airport is back over 50% of its peak traffic and yet cutting its costs - likely making it the least expensive airport compared to Cincinnati and Columbus. Squeezed between Delta dominated Cincinnati and Skybus dominated Columbus, Dayton has to be creative and aggressive. They have plans that many people in the industry will be hearing about.
